Burnley and Middlesbrough are level at half time in the Championship.

Burnley are being held to a goalless draw by Middlesbrough at Turf Moor in the Championship.

The Clarets came close to taking the lead on 21 minutes courtesy of Michael Kightly, who managed meet the ball with his head, but his effort came back off the bar.

Shortly after Dean Marney powered into the box, and Danny Ings's resulting effort crawled narrowly wide of the post to the relief of Dimi Konstantopoulos.

It wasn't all the hosts' way, though, with Danny Graham and Jacob Butterfield forcing a couple of fine saves out of Tom Heaton shortly before the interval, ensuring that the scoreline remained level at the break.
